TERMINALSTAR sets a milestone in container turnover

Container terminal Burchardkai (CTB) has made an important step towards becoming one of the biggest container terminals worldwide – INFORM-Software has been gradually taking over container management since the beginning of June.

The new logistics software installed by INFORM at the Hamburg container terminal Burchardkai (CTB) has been successfully up and running during everyday operations since the beginning of June. The system TERMINALSTAR has been developed together with Hamburg Port Consulting GmbH (HPC). The software will replace the existing terminal IT and from this point forward will successively take over the entire turnover process of 2.6 million standard containers per year. This number is expected to increase to 5.2 million containers by the year 2014, as by then CTB will have expanded to become one of the largest container terminals in the world.
